Wilco: March 24, 2017 Big Ears Festival (Knoxville, TN)

October 27, 2017

Wilco is the kind of popular band that is perfectly suited to a festival like Big Ears. For the past several years, the Knoxville, TN-based festival has put on the kind of genre-agnostic, fan-focused, music-focused event that is an increasing rarity in a festival environment where the top-line band is invariably a mainstream hip-hop act or LCD Soundsystem. Wilco have been called “dad-rock” and a variety of other things like it, but there’s nothing embarrassing about liking a band that has continued to focus on songwriting and continued trying to do something new. If you don’t believe that, you obviously didn’t see, or hear about, Jeff Tweedy’s experimental set during this festival with Chikamorachi (we hope to share that soon).

On this night, Wilco took the stage at the Tennessee Theatre and played a set true to the festival’s style, cranking out several extended noise-jam numbers including “Spiders (Kidsmoke)” and caterwauling “Impossible Germany.” If this didn’t offer quite the novelty of the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot set at Solid Sound later in the year, this set was nonetheless a special one, including starting with the fairly-rarely-played “Radio Cure.” The set doesn’t so much flow as exist as a series of climaxes and valleys, though the noise outro from “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart” into a furious “Art of Almost” is a particular pleasure. Schmilco and its several obligatory appearances gave several points in the set a more sedate feel, as none of these songs seem to have yet established themselves as live breakouts, though “Locator” feels like the most obvious candidate to get there (and is easily the best of the Schmilco songs played at this show). Wilco ended the night with a lesser-played number of 2017, “A Shot In the Arm,” whose coda could as easily have been a message to the music festival world at large: “What you once were isn’t what you want to be any more.” Indeed, if you’re in the business of attending or putting on music festivals, I’d recommend a look at Big Ears.

This set was recorded by Matt Honkonen of the Big Ears staff with a Zoom H6 and was provided to us by Big Ears. The sound quality is a bit compressed at points, but the fairly ideal location of the recorder in the theater yields an overall pleasing result. Enjoy!

Speaking of Big Ears, we’re going to be posting a bunch of sets from the 2017 festival in the upcoming weeks in anticipation of the 2018 festival. The initial lineup announcement comes November 1 and tickets are onsale November 3.

Greensky Bluegrass: August 1, 2015 Gathering of the Vibes (Bridgeport, CT) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

We caught back up with Michigan band Greensky Bluegrass, seen by us most recently at the Gramercy Theatre last year, during the peak heat on this past Saturday at Gathering of the Vibes. The band’s updated bluegrass sound made for a perfect backdrop to the sunny weather, as they mellowed things down with their approachable tunes and good, well, vibes. This being a festival set, we were treated to an hour’s worth of some of the band’s key material, much of it culled from their most recent effort If Sorrows Swim. Back at the Gramercy the band busted out a Prince cover; today found them in a similar mid-’80s frame of mind cover-wise, as they pulled out Dire Straits’ 1985 classic, “Money For Nothing.” MTV barely even exists anymore, but even the younger segments of the Vibe Tribe still seemed to get it. This was Greensky’s first Gathering of the Vibes, and based on the crowd’s response, I suspect they’ll be back.

I recorded this set with four Schoeps microphones, combining a pair of MK4V cardiods with MK5s in the omnidirectional pattern to give the recording added presence. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Wilco has wowed this summer in a few ways — first with their exceptional Solid Sound acoustic performance (which we captured here), then with the surprise free release of Star Wars, easily their finest album in ten years. Here at Gathering of the Vibes on the Bridgeport seaside, the band built on the momentum they created with their full-album performance of Star Wars back at Pitchfork Music Festival with another full-album run through, followed by some of the band’s best-known songs as well as the rarity “Laminated Cat.” As a special treat, Warren Haynes, he of every single guest appearance at northeastern jam festivals, joined for “California Stars” along with Joe Russo to close things out. But lest you think this was a standard-issue performance, Jeff Tweedy and co., buoyed by the presence of Nels Cline, turned even the older tunes into noisier, edgier renditions than we’ve seen recently, perhaps alienating some of this festival’s core audience, but proving that Wilco is returning to what made Yankee Hotel Foxtrot their true landmark album, and what marks them as so much bigger than being the “dad rock” of their detractors. Star Wars has proven that this band has many more good years ahead, and we’ll be thrilled to be a part of them.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones in the taper’s section. While distance and being outdoors always impact sound quality, overall this is an excellent effort. Enjoy!

Gov’t Mule: June 6, 2015 Mountain Jam (Hunter, NY) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

July 1, 2015
By

IMG_2014

Pretty much everything to like about Mountain Jam flows from Warren Haynes and his band Gov’t Mule. As one of the original founders of the festival, Haynes and his fellow participants in Radio Woodstock built something that grew organically around the kind of music they wanted to make and to listen to. That means 60s and 70s-inspired music with improvisational leanings that usually returns to its classic rock core — a pretty apt description of Gov’t Mule. Since the festival was purchased by an app company, some of that magic has been lost in favor of the expected deluge of commercialization and lineup considerations that tend more toward packing in the day-trippers versus creating a cohesive vibe. So, as irritating as it might have been to realize that Mule would be followed by a derivative band with no business being there, it felt good to enjoy what they were doing, and be grateful that they were still giving it their all. In fact, this was Mule’s second outing at the festival, after their epic “Dark Side of the Mule” set from the night before, to go with their latest album. So, if this set was “only” two hours, Mule can more than be forgiven. Perhaps in a covering mood after the night of Floyd just before, Mule closed this one out with a slew of covers, including “Working Class Hero,” “She Said She Said,” “Tomorrow Never Comes,” and a version of the band’s own “Mule” that featured an extended jam into Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition.” No matter how things may change, you can’t say that Mule doesn’t respect the past.

hi and lo and I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4 microphones and a Sonosax high-end analog preamp. The sound quality is quite good. Enjoy!

Lake Street Dive: June 7, 2015 Mountain Jam (Hunter, NY) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

June 25, 2015

Much has changed since we saw Lake Street Dive open for the Infamous Stringdusters three years ago. Mainly, they’re a much, much more popular band. You won’t see this band, whose 2014 album Bad Self Portraits has proven to be their breakout, opening for acts at 500-capacity venues anymore, or playing “I Want You Back” to street corner passersby, as they did way back in the beginning. As is refreshingly the case from time to time, the band’s success seems to be rooted in talent — even at that show in 2012, the unit’s professionalism was clear. Though at the time I compared them to Alabama Shakes, Lake Street Dive’s south-meets-Motown style leans to the shinier, more theatrical side of things, mostly free of grit. “Theatrical” is the word that comes to mind most often with this band, who perform with both a Broadway-like precision and take advantage of Rachael Price’s similarly trained-sounding voice. Unsurprising detail: the band met at the New England Conservatory. This is what happens when a bunch of serious players and students of jazz decide to take on pop music: It’s a bit like an NFL quarterback deciding to go throw some passes with his old high school team.

That made it almost funny to hear Lake Street Dive playing to a muddy Mountain Jam field in the Catskills, delivering effortless vocal harmonies such as on “Look At What Mistake.” If the traditional “jam band” festivals revel to a degree in unpredictability, well, that’s one of many reasons this “Jam” isn’t really a jam-band festival anymore. This was Lake Street Dive’s last show of the tour, as they told us, but you’d have been hard pressed to hear a hint of weariness anywhere from the band. Price did, of course, point out that they try to “eat their vegetables” and treat themselves right on tour, and that I’d believe. She followed that statement, ironically, with the song “I Deserve To Do Something Wrong,” with its distinct Jackson 5 vibe. That was a new song written by the band’s bass player, Bridget Kearney, and it was followed by another new one, “I Don’t Care About You,” from drummer Michael Calabrese. Another plus for this band — they’re as collaborative and consistent in songwriting duties as they are in musical ones.

It wouldn’t be a Mountain Jam set without some choice covers, and Lake Street Dive chose wisely, serving up a version of Annie Lennox’s “Walking On Broken Glass” that Price knocked out of the park, as well as jamming into Van Halen’s “Jump” out of the Bad Self Portraits favorite “Bobby Tanqueray,” which itself is one of the band’s harder-rocking numbers. The band closed the set with “You Go Down Smooth,” and those words are as true of the band itself as of the lover described in the song. This is a positive, grateful group of pros who know where they came from. It’s not hard to guess where they’re headed.

hi and lo and I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones and a high-end EAA PSP-2 analog preamp. Given the outdoor setting  and distance from the PA, the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Trigger Hippy: June 5, 2015 Mountain Jam (Hunter, NY) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

IMG_1909

If God was one of us here at Mountain Jam, he probably would’ve staved off the torrential rain that started falling just after this set by supergroup Trigger Hippy, which features Joan Osborne, Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman, session guitarist Tom Bukovac, singer/songwriter and Black Crowes guitarist Jackie Greene and bassist Nick Govrik. The band’s sound is about what you’d expect from this combination of players — Crowes-style bluesy rock that replaces the tenor twang of Chris Robinson with Osborne, packed around some dense riffage. Along with some of the band’s originals, they played some of the day’s more interesting covers (that is to say, not just extremely popular 70s rock hits). In this case, we got Aretha Franklin and Albert Collins tunes, both of which suggest the influences that led to this band. With each artist having a complimentary background and style, this supergroup may not quite be more than the sum of its parts, but the sum of these parts was more than enough to make Trigger Hippy a worthwhile addition to this year’s Mountain Jam lineup.

I recorded this set from an optimal spot next to the soundboard cage with MBHO microphones. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Alabama Shakes: June 7, 2015 Mountain Jam (Hunter, NY) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

June 8, 2015
By

IMG_2123

It made good sense for Alabama Shakes to end this year’s Mountain Jam, as they ended it on the highest of notes.

By the time you had sat through three or even four days of this year’s festival, you might be forgiven for wondering if anything happened musically in this country since 1972. With exceptions, there were far too many “me-too” bands so slavishly devoted to their heroes that they could only impress the crowd by covering well-known songs by bands superior to them. Consider some of the headliners: Friday, a washed-up warhorse from a legendary 70s act was followed by … a band covering Dark Side of the Moon and other Pink Floyd songs. Saturday, a knockoff of a band from the late 90s-2000s played its bloozy bar rock songs best known for their hard-hitting impact on TV commercials and the opening credits for an HBO sitcom. Just before that band came on, the act before them played a bunch of Beatles and John Lennon songs.

Alabama Shakes could have been nothing more than a “me too” band, and would have been a striking one. There’s no question that Brittany Howard’s vocal style owes a debt to Etta James, Janis Joplin and several others, but what Howard and her band have accomplished with their second album, Sound & Color, moves them firmly into a different class. The band has taken the pieces they already had — a love of classic rock and soul, a cohesive unit, and a frontwoman with an earth-shaking voice and the presence to match — and used them to create daring new songs that push the conversation forward. It’s not an accident that one of the best songs played at this show, “Future People,” uses the word future. Over and over again, Alabama Shakes’ latest work keeps proving that they want more — particularly the fellow new album tracks “Sound & Color” and “Don’t Wanna Fight.” Maybe some people were comfortable adding the Shakes to their Spotify playlists of retro sounds and leaving it at that. The Shakes were not. The Shakes — a working-class band from rural Alabama who only made it onto this stage by working like hell — took a risk.

It’s widely known that the Shakes began life as a cover band, covering 70s standards in local bars. Here, in front of tens of thousands splayed across a mountainside, Howard paused late in the set to thank the crowd for giving the band the opportunity to do what they loved doing. Their last album pulled down three (losing) Grammy nominations. If there’s any justice in the world, this album ought to win one. By the way, in a rare bit of commercial justice, Sound & Color debuted at #1 in the United States. Alabama Shakes are a cover band no more.

If you’re a doubter of “jamband festivals”, this Gov’t Mule performance from Mountain Jam alone might make you reconsider. Three of us from the NYCTaper crew came out for Saturday of this year’s Mountain Jam, held at the Hunter Mountain Ski Resort in Hunter, NY, and the Mule was that day’s main attraction for a number of reasons. The fact that they are a legendary live band was only part of the picture this time; this particular performance also honored the late, great Levon Helm with a set that found the Mule joining the Levon Helm Band for a tribute that no doubt would have found favor with the man. On a misty night against a verdant Catskills backdrop, Mule and guitarist Warren Haynes gave a life-affirming performance that could turn the coldest cynic on to the power of music. Mountains are often used as a metaphor for the obstacles that define human struggle. This night’s music – played against those gorgeous peaks – demonstrated music’s power to transcend even death. As a series of well-known players joined the band onstage for songs from Mule, Helm and history, we were reminded note after note how lucky we are: to be listening, to be here, to be alive. For us – and I guess it’s fair to call us “city people” – this night was a reminder of the grandeur that lies beyond our steel and glass borders. Mule gave us everything they had until the mist had soaked us all. But most importantly, they gave us a chance to give thanks to those who were gone as well as those who were there with us.

Each of the three of us who were at the show recorded this set, and below we are offering two sources: First, hi and lo’s recording with Schoeps MK21s, and second, Johnny Fried Chicken Boy’s Audio Technica cardiods paired with my AKG 414 large-diaphragm mics, set to “wide cardiod mode.” Both recordings stand out in their own way and offer different “flavors” to enjoy.
